DIY Black Cat Pillow | Easy Primitive or Farmhouse Halloween Decor
When I think of Halloween I think of ghosts, goblins and black cats. Sometimes it’s hard to blend in holiday decor with your primive or farmhouse decor – but this DIY black cat pillow will fit in perfectly and he’s anything, but scary! It’s easy to make and even if you are a beginner to DIY projects, I promise you can do this. The primitive style makes it not only super sweet, but made to not look exactly perfect. Everyone is sure to compliment your not-so-spooky black cat pillow!
1 black pillowcase (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby but this one is similar to the one I used)
2 button eyes – I chose to use an amber gold sparkly buttons for eyes.
1 button nose
This is really a simple project! First, place your pillowcase on your pillow.
Find a spot for the eyes to go. You will want to place these about a third of the way down your pillow.
Thread your needle with the black thread and sew the button on. You will want to make sure that you go all the way through the pillow at least once when sewing the buttons on to pull the buttons into the pillow a little bit. Sew the other eye on the same way.
Next you will sew your button nose the same way that you sewed your eyes on.
The whiskers are up next. Thread your needle with the metallic embroidery floss. Starting from just under the button nose, add some wispy whiskers. There is really no wrong way to do this! I found it is easiest to make one very long stitch to create the whisker.
Your pillow is complete!
Fun, pretty and perfectly primitive – this pillow is something that you would expect to find in a high end boutique! Everyone will be so impressed when you tell everyone you made it yourself. Just get prepared for when your friends ask you to make them one as well!
